Two areas previously undocumented in pressure sewer evaluations are operation and maintenance history and septic tank effluent treatability. Nine sites were visted to highlight these considerations, especially their relationship to overall system cost-effectiveness. Pressure sewer systems require numerous specialized components, each of which demand varying degrees of operation and maintenance. This report considers operations and maintenance for the following: on-lot, mainline, and treatment facilities. On-lot maintenance tasks differ for the two major types of systems - grinder pump and septic tank effluent pumping. Both preventive maintenance and breakdown maintenance duties were investigated.
